March Sketch Challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown

If you are looking for the Color My Heart Color Dare blog post please go here.

The Close To My Heart Artbooking cartridge has so many wonderful images to choose from that it made it really easy to make this card.

There is holographic paper (Colorbok) underneath the raised snowflake overlay (Artbooking page 76 overlay shift at 2.25" and trimmed to fit the space.  The greeting was silver embossed from the Holiday Wishes stamp set (retired CTMH).  The background paper is Close To My Heart Sky CS.  The stitching was done with a piercing tool, ruler and white gel pen.

This is the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown sketch that inspired me:

I'm also entering this card into the Merry Monday #98 challenge to use stitching and buttons (I'm taking artistic liberty to consider sequins as buttons--buttons were just not sparkly enough for my card!)

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
:) Marie
